Clinical Approach to Restoring Thyroid Balance With Dr. Lisa Lewis

Series 4 Episode 28
In this episode, we discuss how to assist your clients to restore their energy by balancing the thyroid function. There are many people on thyroid hormones and for a lot of us, this is not the right approach. The main function of thyroid is to control the metabolic rate of every cell. How do we, as practitioners, determine the best approach to optimizing the thyroid? Our guest today is Dr. Lisa Lewis, one of our nutritional endocrinology practitioners and naturopathy doctors, with over 20 years of experience. Dr Lisa Lewis is also a hormone health expert, a speaker and a transformational healer. Tune in to learn how to best support your clients in balancing their thyroid function.


  •  [03:00] Dr. Lewis assists women who are suffering with complex and unresolved hormonal symptoms.

  • [10:00] Things that people have been exposed to all of their lives, having an impact on their thyroid and hormones.

  • [13:00] Slowing down when the pandemic hit had a positive effect on sleep and stress.

  •  [16:00] Instead of focusing on one or two symptoms, have a holistic perspective and ask what conditions would show up with all of these symptoms.

  • [24:00] Getting people off the things they feel are supporting them, only because they’ve been doing all the protocols for years.

  • [30:00] For people who have been doing what an average thyroid patient would, including taking medication and watching their diet, and who haven’t gotten any results, it makes sense to get into the mental, emotional and spiritual space.


  • There are a lot of people today with hormonal and thyroid imbalances.

  • Instead of diagnosing one or two symptoms, it’s best to take a holistic approach and see the bigger picture of what type of condition a client could have.
